Senior Club Competition Winners Oct 2020

Rustenburg Photographic Society Ian Cumming Pied Hover

Congratulations to Ian Cumming from Rustenburg Photographic Society

Ian is our October winner with “Pied Hover”

Ian says:

I took the photo a long time ago and was still learning. I never thought of entering it in anything until now.  It was taken in Pilanesberg on 17 July 2013 in Mankwe Hide and was taken as a JPEG – horrors!

I was trying to achieve some wing blur and used spot metering. Shutter speed was 1/250 sec @ f11 with ISO 200.

I used a Nikon D300 with a Sigma 150-500 mm lens zoomed to the max and hand held. The minute I looked at it I realised it was going to be a keeper.

Our 1st runner-up is Gonnie Myburgh from National Photographic Club with “Vroegoggend Uitstappie”
